The suspect has been detained along with 93 packages of crystal meth weighing 45.85 grams. During the interrogation, the suspect admitted that his financial situation forced him to accept this job in order to survive after being unemployed for quite a long time. Meanwhile, authorities from the Bali Police Department confirmed that the narcotics cases have been surging since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in Bali as many people were laid-off from their job, causing them to lose their income to provide for their family.
